Mother's Day

Thanks for your comments about our sweet Tori. I do miss her.

We had a good weekend otherwise. Chris and Marissa took us to MGM Grand for dinner at the buffet. They have the best food there and I ate way too much! As usual, it was wonderful to see them! When Chris asked me what I would like for Mother's Day, I actually channeled my mother by saying, "Other than to see you guys, nothing!" She used to say that all of the time!

Speaking of my mother. I usually bring a big bouquet of lilacs from our bush in the backyard to the cemetery on Mother's Day. This year I could barely scrap up a couple of decent branches. It must be the cold weather we have been having because my lilacs were very short lived!

Shauna went to dinner with us on Friday and then came over on Sunday for a while, too. No news on the job yet, still keeping our fingers crossed. It's agony to have to wait especially when she is so anxious to get a new job!

This Saturday morning I have to walk 5 miles for the American Heart Association with some people in my department at work. I did not do the fund-raising I was supposed to do and only managed to scrap up about $30.

Oh well, I will never be known for my mad fundraising skills!

Hey baby, how you doin'?

I'm glad you were with your kids for Mother's Day weekend. So sweet.

Nor have I ever been good at fundraising; hate to ask people for money! But, you're doing the walk and that's great!! :)

Still thinking about and hoping for Shauna to get that job!!!!!

Wow - 5 miles! But then I'm older than dirt, at least that's the way I feel. Glad you had a good Mothers' Day.
